BLACKFOOT — Bingham County residents resoundingly voted not to join the College of Eastern Idaho’s taxing district Tuesday.

As a result the county will continue to be billed on a quarterly basis $50 per credit per student enrolled in the college from Bingham County. Property taxes will not be affected.

Bonneville County will remain the only county in CEI’s college’s taxing district.
